The cushion is a complexion product that has a light and natural finish which is very popular in Korea.

I know the cushion has a light to medium coverage that’s not enough to cover your blemishes. But you should be calm girls. Your skin still can look flawless and clean with the help of concealer. Concealer is made with a high coverage over foundation or even cushion.

First, you should apply concealer that needs extra coverage like under the eyes, acne, or dark spot. Then, you can wait a few minutes until the condition is half-dry. After you feel it’s enough, you can continue to blend it with a wet sponge. And voila, your look so flawless now!
